Before, During, After

posted in: Blog, Timber Frame Raisings | 0

From stacks of timbers, to raisings, to finished timber frames, here is a brief glimpse into some of our projects. Before, during & after.

Watching a stack of timbers arrive in the shop is always an exciting moment. First comes layout. Then the saws and chisels come out.

Hours and hours of cutting, checking measurements, more cutting.

Drilling peg holes, test fitting and tweaking, the finished timber frames take shape.

Raising is hard work, but really it's the reward - to see your efforts come to life.
